"Fun in Shibuya on Saturday Night, March 9th, 1991"

Beginning on the inside of a bus I took from Roppongi to Shibuya, and then staying in Shibuya where I met friends in Hachiko Square, saw a cool street band, watched a Corvette drive past, had fun in a drinking place, and then went to Shibuya Station for one of the last trains home.

Watching this now, it does look like things were rocking in the "bubble era", although for the most part, I remember life being just ordinary life back then.  Certainly there was a lot of money flying around the economy then, so entertainment (restaurants, drinking places, concerts, etc.) did really well, but it didn't really change how things were on a day-to-day basis so much.  Of course, now the economy seems to be getting worse and worse, by contrast, it's looking increasingly like a very different era....
